yes, it is because the animation editor uses different frame rate than the game... slow down the animation in the animation editor.
Otherwise you can set the frame rate of the game much higher to match the animation editor but i wouldnt recomend it.

Well for one, you're using one of the easiest tools out there for as much power as you're getting. If this isn't easy, than maybe game design isn't the right field for you, because it only gets more complex from here on out.

You're right, it doesn't make sense, it's silly. Just one of those things you have to keep in mind.

Didn't it used to do something like this in KNP? Anyway, as OMC said it's just one of those annoying things you learn to live with
Kind of like a really loud parrot. It may squawk all night but at least you'll get used to wearing earplugs. Something I can guarantee will come in handy later on.

Ok that's enough metaphors from me.

A good explanation for this is that the animation editor is only running code to animate your sprite. When your game is running, it is running a lot more code in the background, which would slow down the frame rate compared to when you are in the animation editor.

It could also be that MMF programs default at 50 frames per second, and your screen is being refreshed faster than that while in the animation editor.

It does make sense, but unfortunately, it's just one of those things that you just have to toy with to get right

I get around it by using alterable values with timers and stuff to set animation frames/directions/speeds - gives a lot more control than the default animation controls. Little extra work but it seems to make things more solid and flexible, for me.

I got in the habit of giving a lot of my animated objects a behavior specifically for animation and linking it to the first alterable value, and I link the first flag for forward or backward. That way no matter what I do, I have a pretty general standard across the board when working with a wide variety of objects. It defiantly gives me a lot of flexibility while keeping things organized.

PS: Only bringing this up because Neuro mentioned it. It really does work, and well.
